First, I’m not here to debate what Google is.
Anyone with a basic level of understanding of the origin of the company, and its manipulation of human consciousness, is aware that Google is a CIA project.
Those who disagree can find many other places on the internet to applaud Google (the CIA). This thread is not the place for CIA / Google apologists.
The reason I raise the topic is that Haiku has clear financial ties to Google (the CIA). Specifically via the “Summer of Code” etc.
Although it is entirely possible that the CIA do not yet have a developer ingratiated into the core Haiku team, if the popularity of Haiku continues to grow, the CIA (Google), will use some known tactics to either backdoor, or “embrace, extend, extinguish” Haiku.
I am sure that intelligent minds on this forum understand: Any newly-emerging popular OS poses a threat to the CIA. For the simple reason that, if that OS is secure, then it becomes a closed-door system to the CIA.
The CIA (Google) does not like closed-doors.
What I’m flagging up here is that Google (the CIA) approach tech groups, like Haiku, as a ‘friend’ (ie an ‘investor’ or ‘donor’). Google then encourage a reliance on their donations / assistance. Then, at a critical juncture, the CIA (Google) will threaten to withdrawn funding if the project does not comply with their demands.
Google’s strategy is to create a resource dependency, and then use that dependency for control.
I suggest immediately breaking ties with the CIA (Google).
The other Google-strategy is harder to mitigate against: The CIA / Google will attempt to infiltrate the core team and insert backdoors and/or derail the project. This can be defended against by strict code-reviews.
In summary: Haiku has reached a point of interest where it is being targeted by Google (the CIA). I advise not letting them in through the front door. Their ‘donations’ are hostile. Don’t make the same mistake as other projects. Cut the CIA off now, before the dependency grows.
To restate my initial thesis: This is not a thread for those who are still naive to what Google is. You have vast swathes of the internet to peddle that delusion freely.
This thread is for a discussion of the brutal reality of Google (the CIA) and the threat they represent to all emerging new OS designers.
I send everyone good vibes. Keep going! Haiku is magic.
